Ah, Brazil. Dangerous and beautiful. Where the bikinis are low-cut and the crime rates are high. I, personally, choose to focus on the positive. Brazil, you have given us Piedra Azul, Caetano Veloso, and Sepultura. For this I thank you.
Beneath the Remains is certainly equal to Slayer's magnum opus Reign in Blood in terms of intensity and pure, unadulterated riffage. This is one of those albums that I listen to over and over again--one of those albums that stands out in the vast, churning red sea that is Thrash Metal. It's one of those albums that makes me want to learn how to play it from beginning to end. And Oh, I will succeed. Ever wonder what a motorcycle made out of dead robots would sound like? Well, take a listen brothers and sisters. This thing was, and is, way ahead of its time.
